Hi everyone ! I am new here and i just thought i would introduce myself and let everyone know a little about me... I am 23 years old with a little girl she is 5 and I have had reccurent (sp)? abdominal pains for about 3 or 4 years in my right upper abdomen... I had my appendix and gallbladder removed and adhesions removed to try to figure out if this is what was causing the problem... Well, Needless to say it didnt help ! I have had numerous tests and bloodwork done and I feel like im standing at a dead end here.. I have changed my diet to see if it was something to do with the foods I was eating... Also, I have lost alot of weight and can not seem to get over the 100 pound mark... I am so confused...

Here are my sypmtoms, Severe sharp stabbing pains right under my ribs on the right side of my stomach... They come and go... But when they come im doubled over in pain... I cant find any releif... Nothing i take OTC or prescription medicine seems to work... antacids, IBS med, and ect..

Does anyone have this going on ??? I am desperate to find some answers ! I am going to see a new doctor sometime next week so maybe i can get some ideas here to better help me when i go talk to my new doctor ! Thank you guys so much for taking the time out to read this post and I look forward to hearing from you ! :) :)
